Google Licenses ActiveSync

Most companies seem to license Microsoft's ActiveSync protocol in order to connect their mobility platform to Microsoft Exchange.

Google has licensed ActiveSync to connect Google Contacts and some Calendar objects to mobile phones. They are calling this GoogleSync and it is currently in beta. The 'push' technology inside GoogleSync is provided by Microsoft.

According to this article, this agreement between Microsoft and Google does not include using ActiveSync to connect Google's Android to Microsoft Exchange Server.
